CT DCP said the gnocchi may contain milk, an allergen that is not listed on the product's label and can cause life-threatening reactions. The product also may contain other undeclared sulfites. 

“It's incredibly important to ensure that food products are labeled appropriately, especially when they may contain allergens that can threaten our health," said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull. "We hope that consumers will take caution and return this product quickly if they have a milk or sulfite allergy, and we thank Durante Pasta for cooperating with the recall."
